BIRMINGHAM, AL -

Meteorologist Richard Jacks predicts the rain will dry up Sunday, after incessant precipitation Saturday. Because of this unusually wet summer, farmers in 50 Alabama counties can get federal emergency loans.

The US Department of Agriculture approved the assistance after the state asked for it.

Cotton, soybeans, hay, and peanuts were among the biggest losses for farmers, during the growing season.
